Volunteer’s leader needed for the 49th Regional Restoration Camp
Are you a former RRC camp participant?
Are you enthusiastic about the idea of being fully involved in the implementation of a camp?
We are excited to inform you that we are now looking for volunteers for the 49th Regional Restoration Camp!
This year the Regional Restoration Camp will focus on the conservation, interpretation and documentation of some very representative cultural heritage assets on the cross border between Northern Albania and Montenegro. The mere purpose of these activities is to impact and help the local inhabitants, organizations and institutions – working to preserve their historic assets, crafts and techniques and giving them new ways of understanding, enjoying and revitalizing them, therefore help us to strengthen this connection of the community with their local heritage.
Your involvement as a volunteer is very precious in the running of the camps: you become the bridge between the craftspeople, experts, organizers and participants. You make the experience of the latter more rewarding, by bringing your previous experiences and sharing lessons learned.
Why volunteering for RRC?
While you will be gaining theoretical and practical knowledge about local materials, restoration techniques and documentation methods, you will also have a key role to play in dealing with logistical, intercultural and social aspects during the camp. This is a valuable opportunity to gain new skills and build knowledge and experience in the field of cultural heritage, working in close cooperation with craftspeople, local cultural and tourism actors and lecturers.
What will be your duties?
Volunteers will receive instructions related to their responsibilities during the Camp. They may be asked to assist with the following areas:
Organizational tasks (responsibility over the registration, logistics)
Responsibility over the working sites (assisting the crafts, documenting, implementing safety measures, making sure everyone is working towards the final result)
Communication/Community (being the bridge between organizers and participants, translations, facilitating discussions, communicating with local community and media)
You are a former participant of a CHwB Albania Regional Restoration Camps.
You speak fluent English, Montegrin and/or Albanian,
You are honest, cheerful and an efficient worker.
CHwB Albania will cover all costs for volunteers, including accommodation, meals, excursions & travels as indicated in the program agenda and costs connected to volunteer duties.
